homescreen quick access
#1
Hello everyone, 
I have an idea: would it be possible to make a button-like app, or widget that one would have on his homescreen on iphone/ipad/android device that would do one of the CF commands just by taping on it, without opening an actual app? I can think of various scenarios where this would be very helpful, for example a button/app that will run "I am home" scene, or just turn on/off the main light in my bedroom. 

Thanks for any notes to this topic.

Should be pretty simple with Android since you can install external APK files. You can create a widget for Android home screen which acts like a button and sends commands via HTTP requests.

iOS is another story due to Apple policies Sad

yes, but is there a way how to kill/minimize the web browser automatically after it sends such a command?
